Giving you more of what for
Always worked for me before
Now I`m a shabby doll
What`s going on behind the green elevator door
With just a shabby doll

There`s a hit man facing
A compromising situation
With just a shabby doll
And a very neat line in character assassination
She`s just a shabby doll

She`s just a shabby doll
She`s putting him off and putting you on
She`s just the shabby doll
You`re swearing upon you know in your heart
She`s gone you know in your heart
She`s just a shabby doll

There`s a girl in this dress
There`s always a girl in distress
She`s just a shabby doll
She`s so sure she`s self-possessed
Then again she`s half undressed
She`s just a shabby doll

The boy that I used to be
Showed no sign of sympathy
For just a shabby doll
I have betrayed you and me
And paid for my own bribery
With just a shabby doll

[Chorus:]
He`s the tired toy that everyone enjoyed
He wants to be a fancy man but he`s nothing but a nancy boy
He`s all pride and no joy

And being what you might call a whore
Always worked for me before
Now I`m a shabby doll
Untie the gag the cat`s out of the bag
But won`t show his claws
He`s just a shabby doll

She said you must be joking
Some things are left unspoken
You`re just a shabby doll
He`s lying limp and soaking
He was openly broken
By just a shabby doll

[Chorus:]
